How To Make Natural Tinted Lip Balm and Wednesday's Adorned from Above Link Party 19

Read all the way through to get the recipe for my new and improved How to Make Natural Tinted Lip Balm.
Welcome to my Wednesdays Adorned from Above Link Party 19.   I hope that all of you have fun, and I can't wait to see all of your beautiful work from the last week.  You are all truly amazing.  I want to thank all of you for your support of Adorned From Above.  I really appreciate all of the time you take to link to my parties.  Keep up the good work.

The first thing I am going to ask any of you to do is to become a GFC Follower if you are not already following me.  I would really appreciate it. You could also follow me on Pinterest, Twitter, or Facebook, Linky, anything you want.

This week I am featuring the three top blogs that had the most visits. Clicking on the like button will also help to pick which posts you like the most.  Right now I am picking the links with the most page views.
I am thrilled to feature the following posts this week.  So without further ado, I would like to present these beautiful and informative blogs.  To those of you that I featured just grab my new Wednesdays Adorned From Above Featured Button in my sidebar, or you can post a text link.

Isn't this a beautiful chest?  I love it.

This is the most adorable birthday dress and so is Betsy's daughter.

These look so good, I am going to have to make them for my middle son who can eat anything.

I want to thank everyone who linked with my Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party 19.  All of your projects are wonderful and I would feature all of them if I could, but I think that the blog would probably be a little too long.  I hope that all of you link more posts this week.  Let's Party!!!

Your posts can include anything, I would love to see what you have been up to.

The only rules are to follow me, have a link somewhere on your post to Adorned From Above, and visit some other posts - after all it is a party.
I had posted a recipe for Pink Honey Beeswax Lip Balm .  It was tinted with Kool Aid, which gave a just a light color on your lips and a tiny bit of flavor.  One of the comments that I got from someone on Pinterest was to make it with natural food coloring.  Well, I want all of you to know that I do listen to you.  I try to take your suggestions into account, if it is possible.   "Great Idea!!!", "Thank you. Thank you.  Thank You!!!"

I decided to find natural food coloring and to take the recommendation one step further and add a natural flavoring also.  I figure that if we got an amazing lip balm with a great color and flavor, these would make great stocking stuffers for Christmas.  So here it is,  How to Make Natural Tinted Lip Balm.
Natural Tinted Honey Beeswax Mint Lip Balm
1 oz. beeswax
4 TB honey
4 TB coconut Oil
India Tree Natural Food Coloring
1/8 tsp Natural Mint Extract
Melt beeswax in a small pan over low to medium heat.  
Next add the coconut oil and honey and heat just until melted.
Then add food coloring until you get the color you want.  Then and the extract.
Put pan in ice and whisk until your lip balm has hardened and put in your sterilized lip balm containers.

Lip Balm 1 - 10 drops red food coloring

Lip Balm 2 - 25 drops red food coloring

Lip Balm 3 - 35 drops red food coloring

                       4 drops yellow food coloring

Lip Balm 5 - 50 drops red food coloring
                     25 drops blue food coloring
                       6 drops yellow food coloring

I am trying to make natural beauty products and I think that using natural food colors is a great way to go.  Let me know what you think of this Natural Tinted Honey Beeswax Flavored Lip Balm recipe.  I always love hearing from you.
